Hi, I am using Python Moku API to operate logic analyzer/ pattern generator. I would like to know if there are any options to trigger the data acquisition from external source given as an input to a pin of logic analyzer. I need the data only when the trigger pulse is high. The trigger I am using is generated using the pattern generator in Moku: Go. I would also like to know if there is any option to count the number of pulses obtained from the external source. I am trying to get the number of times the device registers a pulse when my trigger pulse is high.
At this time it is not possible to trigger the Data Logger using an external (or internal) source. This is one of our most requested features and we are working hard to bring it to the Moku devices!
As far an event counter, this is something we developed using Moku Cloud Compile. If you are not familiar with this feature, please visit compile.liquidinstruments.com where you can find many examples, one of which is an event counter you can download through our gitlab linked there. This uses VHDL to launch custom instruments on the Moku, so we do not have a dedicated event counter instrument at this time.
Thanks! I will look into that feature
